Meet the Mets

Will Jacob deGrom be named the National League Rookie of the Year tonight? Ron Darling says you can lock it up.

Kristie Ackert of the Daily News talked to scouts about the potential they saw in deGrom back when he was first discovered at Stetson University.

Mike Puma has three issues that Sandy Alderson must address at the general managers' meetings that begin today in Arizona.

Some more pictures of the Citi Field wall construction have emerged thanks to @NikoMLB on Twitter.

Mets 360 says that even though the fan base is hungry for change, the Mets' roster is already pretty competitive as currently constructed.

Around the National League East

Although Kris Medlen will still be recovering from Tommy John surgery when the 2015 season begins, the Braves are still thinking of bringing him back if they can avoid arbitration.

Federal Baseball wonders if rumored Mets free agent target Jed Lowrie makes sense for the Nationals at second base.

Around the Majors

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington says he has gotten calls from several teams regarding Boston's outfielders. The club isn't against dealing one of them if the right deal arises.

Also good news for the Mets is this Ken Rosenthal tweet that makes it seem like the Dodgers are ready to unload an outfielder or two. With Joc Pederson ready to make a big league impact in 2015, Los Angeles has a surplus at the position.

Citi Field isn't the only park that's having work done this winter. Bleed Cubbie Blue has some pictures from the construction going on at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

New Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi talks about how excited he is to get to work on a Los Angeles team that is now as loaded in the front office as it is on the diamond.
